One Month Letter

Hi Baby Girl

You are one month old today! (OK yesterday… you should know by now that Mommy is not always exactly on time.) And already you are changing SO much that it makes me sad sometimes. There were days when we first brought you home from the hospital that I found myself wishing out loud that you could talk and tell me what you needed or wanted because I just didn’t know what to do for you. But I don’t want to wish your life away. I’m trying to find ways to savor these moments with you while you’re still small enough to curl up on my chest and take naps, watching you give us little smiles, listening to you start to coo and make little baby noises that just melt my heart.

This last month with you has been wonderful in ways I could never have imagined. We received so many cards and gifts from people who are are so happy for us because of you. Do you understand yet how important it is to have people looking out for you? Maybe people that you don’t know all that well or people you don’t see every day, but people that care about you just the same. That’s one advantage to living in a small town, I suppose.

You’ve made such a difference in the lives of your daddy and I. For me, you’ve challenged me in a new and amazing way. Before you arrived I was feeling pretty confident that there wasn’t much I couldn’t handle. At work, I’ve finally got my stuff together and know how to handle most of the fires that are thrown at me… but with you… you take some figuring out and you made me realize that no matter what happens within my office walls, what’s really important is that you are healthy, safe and happy. That’s my new purpose in life. For Daddy, (besides being the new girl in his life that he’s head over heels in love with) you have been a much needed ray of sunshine during a sort of bad football season. Having you to come home to took the sting out of bad days at practice and games that didn’t end in our favor.

Some days I can’t believe it’s already been a month and other days I feel like you’ve been a part of our lives forever. I’m going to try to write you one of these letters every month and talk more about you… what you’re doing, how you’re changing, etc. We are also going to try to get a picture of you each month with Mr. Bear so we can see how much bigger you’re getting. Maybe someday you’ll like reading them and learning what was going on around you during your first year or so of life!

We love you, sweetheart!
